My name is Catalina Soleil
& I'm a graphic designer
While I was born and raised in Arizona, I have spent the last three years calling Oregon my home as I worked towards my two associate degrees.
AAS in Graphic Design & AAS in Interactive Media
I recently graduated from the Visual Communications program at Chemeketa Community College. It was within this program that I developed my deep appreciation of typography, page layout, and web development — a medium I had no prior experience with.
Once I had a taste of web design, I couldn't get enough. I quickly began to immerse myself in code, and took on the challenge of completing the interactive media degree along with my graphic design major. Throughout my three years in the program, I obtained an in-depth knowledge of the Adobe Suite of applications while experiencing work with real clients in an agency-like setting. This gave me the chance to explore creative solutions to real problems with many of the same challenges in the field, such as working as a team on both print and web projects, as well as practicing how to be flexible and adapt to client needs on the fly.
When I'm not in the thick of it with my laptop, I can be observed laughing with friends and family, devouring a good book, or brewing a fresh pot of tea. ♥
